• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Best of San Francisco and Bay Area

Tonight is my red-eye to the east coast where I will finally end my current long distance and move in with my soon-to-be husband in New York City! Lots of things have happened this past year in San Francisco and the great Bay Area.

This post is a highlight, with some never-before-blogged photos!

I stopped being a full-time professional photographer altogether when I moved to San Francisco, but that did not stop me from indulging in a little creative photography. I think it helps me keep my brains active =)

I really fell in love with the natural beauty of the state of California, so as you can expect, a lot of the photographs here are heavy on nature

It was my first time living with cats. Many of them. I split my time in SF between three sublets. This is actually not one of our housecats, but a next door cat who likes to come in and steal our housecat’s food. He’s very loveable

I am going to miss crazy blue skies

And lots of trips up to Napa / wine valley

Where I got engaged…

Another panoramic I took on our drive back down after our engagement

Where I shot another engagement

And two weddings

Within the city of SF, there is a diverse set of places where one can photograph. From modern…

to street…

To my favorite golden rays through trees

Just a short drive you’ll get dramatic coastlines…

Hiking trails…

And did I mention, more golden sunshine?

Thank you all friends, old and new, and everyone who’s been part of my time here.
